42nd ANNUAL SCHOOL SAFETY PATROL AWARDS
The Winnipeg Police Service hosted the 42nd Annual School Safety Patrol Awards ceremony this morning at the Convention Centre.
Since 1936, the Winnipeg Police Service has been involved in the School Safety Patrol Program. Winnipeg is proud to have had the first fully organized and officially recognized school patrol program in Canada. The School Safety Patrol Program is beginning its milestone 80th year.
Every year the patrols are judged on their ability, professionalism and technique while on patrol by the School Education Section of the Winnipeg Police Service.
In 2016, there were approximately 7,000 patrols ensuring our children arrive safely to their schools everyday here in Winnipeg.
The top four City-Wide School Patrol teams are as follows:
1st Place Montrose School Winnipeg School Division (South District) CAA Manitoba Trophy
2nd Place Bairdmore School Pembina Trails School Division Winnipeg Free Press Trophy
